Scots ICA IT director appointed to provide support to IFAC

Scots ICA information technology director Robin Mathieson has been secretary and will provide technical support to the IT Committee of the International Federation of Accountants in New York from May this year.

He will continue in his role but his dual role has brought about internal changes at the institute.

Mathieson has previously acted as the UK technical adviser to IFAC, representing the UK accountancy bodies at its IT Committee for the past two years.

‘This is an exciting move that will be of great value to ICAS, providing it with increased access to international IT expertise whilst allowing it to contribute to the strategies of many developing countries around the world,’ he said.

He will also pass some of the day-to-day management tasks to his newly appointed deputy director of information technology, Grace McGill, who will take up her new post in April.

A Consultant to ICAS since October 1997, McGill has held positions as computer audit manager with KPMG, moving to become group computer auditor and later group internal audit manager with pharmaceuticals company Christian Salvesen in Edinburgh.

She said: ‘I very much enjoy being part of the ICAS team and I look at my new appointment as an opportunity to add value to ICAS and its members as we further develop our key applications in a new environment at Haymarket Court.’
